My silver Cuckoo Clock’s coming on nicely..

For my brand new micro collection entitled ‘Home‘. I’ve so loved working on this piece, my miniature Cuckoo Clock charm has been built by hand, to look just like the one to be found in our little boutique. Off to the casters and available very soon.. Stay tuned for my next ‘Home’ inspired piece…

My rough sketch.. I didn’t quite manage the toadstools, was just too tiny..

Broken saw blade stuck in place and rolled through the rolling mill give the clock it’s wooden texture ..

Herbie’s ‘Spider’ Pendant

I collaborated with a 4 years old on this piece.. I was given this little fellow’s drawing (a spider in his web, see below) and was asked to make a pendant for his Mother. I didn’t want to change a thing as thought the drawing was perfect, it has such beautiful simplicity. I got completely absorbed in it and slavishly copied the weight and direction of the lines, even the outline had to be exact, although slightly tilted to give the piece a better drop. The Sapphire representing the ‘Spider’, was taken from a Grandma’s engagement ring. I’ll look forward to working with this young man in the future, he has a wonderful eye!.
